Use Sponges in Plant Containers

When introducing a water thirsty plant to a larger container, I go to the dollar store and buy some inexpensive sponges. I then cut them up into small pieces and introduce them all through the soil evenly down to the bottom of the pot. Then each time I water the plant, the sponges will hold the moisture and my thirsty little plants will be happy for a significantly longer period of time!

Certainly less expensive than using those "crystals" you can buy. Thank you for the tip!
